My dance card is rather full, which is a wonderful thing. If we are already communicating, please continue to do so! Otherwise, I will be very selective in replying.
January 2014 Update.
This is a long profile. I guess I don't have the usual hang ups about describing what I think and what I want. I have found that being very clear about what you need and desire is the best way to make the connections you are seeking. If you don't read the whole thing, please read the section "you should message me if" prior to sending me a message.
Libertine. My definition: someone who embraces their passions, sexual and otherwise. Libertines seek to live life like no one is watching.
My passions: nature, knowledge, adventure, travel, laughter, sex, the ocean, and music. (The order varies.)
I am a 48yo white female, Irish ancestors, (red hair, green eyes), medical social worker, amatuer naturalist, multi-media aspiring artist. Lover of: eclectic music, poetry, antique glass, the Ocean, travel, dreaming, afternoon naps, week days off from work, my pugs, my friends, treasure hunting for antiques in thrift shops/garage sales, watching storms from the porch, Science, observing nature, warm rain, talking about the important things in life with friends, good food, big red wines, snorkeling, beachcombing on an empty stretch of beach, laughing, giving compliments, the smell of fresh cut grass, clove cigarettes, dusk...
My interests are varied and it is a pleasure getting to talk with other people who are interested in similar topics. I love to learn new things. I am fascinated by nature, especially anything to do with the ocean. The connection between how we use language and how we think is endlessly interesting. I care for people who are dying, so I think about death and how it defines our choices a fair amount of the time. Evolution and the interconnected nature of reality, how everything is related in some subtle but important way to everything else, amazes me on a daily basis.
I care about what happens in the world, so I try to stay modestly informed about world events. I lean to the left in social issues and I am somewhat of a centrist on economic issues. I don't need to talk politics with people I meet, but people who think Fox News is fair and balanced will not enjoy my company.
I love sarcasm, especially the thoughtful/amusing awareness of just how ridiculous life can be. I am a materialist in the deeper sense of the meaning; everything is based on the material world. Rather consistently, I am an atheist. I always enjoy meeting or connecting with others who view the world through a similar lens. I am not, however, arrogant or pushy about my belief system.
You can learn a lot about me by reading my questions with explanations.
ENFP if you are interested. (Myers-Briggs Personality profile.)
